Singin' in the Rain Musical

ESM's Spartan Stage will present the classic musical “Singin’ in the Rain” on March 7 and 8 at 7 p.m. and March 9 at 2 & 7 p.m. in the CHS auditorium. Tickets are $10 online (link)  and $12 at the door, if available.  

The musical includes some of the best-loved comedy routines, dance numbers and love songs ever written, including “Good Mornin’,” “Make ‘em Laugh,” and — of course — the show-stopping dance number, “Singin’ in the Rain.” Set in 1927, it captures the waning days of the silent screen era as the new-fangled “talkies” take over. It premiered as a movie in 1952 featuring Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds. 

It's such a heavy dance show that there is a team of 2 choreographers: Caira Cramer Walter and Lauren Puente. The cast is doing a fabulous job rehearsing the acting and singing as well as learning to tap dance! Lead roles are Don Lockwood (senior Aiden O’Brien), Lina Lamont (freshman Elizabeth Zuber), Cosmo Brown (junior Ryan Sullivan) and Kathy Selden (sophomore Madison Macomber).

Director/Producer Aimee deBerjeois said this is the grandest show she has ever produced. The show has the largest pit band she has ever worked with and will sound amazing!

The show features exquisite costumes, lights and sets. Spartan Stage alumni Hannah Caccamo and Todd Durantini return as stage manager and technical directors, respectively. ESM residents and parents of the crew: Carl and Joyce Rode designed and built the set. It took an engineer this year to create all the special effects the show will feature! 

CNY costumes outdid themselves with the costumes this year! Time period clothing, sets and language will bring you right back to 1927. The historical piece of movies moving from silent to "talkies" is hilarious!
